Attendance Awareness Month

Hello parents, teachers and staff.  I am excited to announce that September
is Attendance Awareness Month. Here are a few things to remember
about attendance: 

  • Good attendance helps children do well in school and eventually in the workplace. 
  • Excused and unexcused absences easily add up to too much time lost in the classroom. 
  • Relationship building is fundamental to any strategy for improving student attendance. 
  • Reducing chronic absence can help close achievement gaps. 
  • Chronic absence is a problem we can solve when the whole community, along with parents and schools, get involved in improving attendance. 
  • If you’re having trouble getting to school – issues with transportation, bullies, etc. – tell someone, such as a guidance counselor or your parents

Attendance matters from the first day of school until the last day. Let’s
start the year off right and finish strong! See how you can get involved

Picture Makeup Day

SRMS Choir at Solar Bears

The SRMS Bel Canto, Men’s Singing Eagles and SR Singers Combined Choirs will be performing the National Anthem for the Solar Bears game on Thursday, November 10.
We invite our entire school community to come out to support our Choral Department. 
Please find discounted ticket information by clicking on the link below.

Tickets must be purchased online through the Solar Bears!


On Wednesday, October 19th, all students will be scheduled for a full school day of school instead of their normal early release.  This is so all eighth through twelfth grade students can sit for PSAT and SAT tests without the concern of running out of time due to an hour shorter student day on Wednesday. 


The OCPS testing window for Semester 1 Common Final Exams (CFEs) is December 12th through 16th.  These exams are required by the state and created by OCPS staff.  

CFEs are given by paper and pencil, consist of approximately 40 multiple choice questions, are taken in an 80 minute block, and account for 20% of a student’s Semester 1 grade. 

Semester 1- CFEs will be administered to students who are enrolled in a P.E., Learning Strategies, Introduction to Agriscience and Exploration of Agriscience.  

OCPS 30-30 Rule
